Manatee Performing Arts Center Production of 2.5 Minute Ride
April 5, 2018 @ 12:00 am - April 22, 2018 @ 11:55 pm$26
Manatee Players’ production of 2.5 Minute Ride runs April 5–22, in Bradenton Kiwanis Theater, Manatee Performing Arts Center.
In this play, the author, Lisa Kron, takes the audience on a dramatic, comedic, heroic journey of her eccentric relations. Rich in anecdotal detail, we hear the stories of her cosmetic-hording grandmother, wife-seeking brother, and roller-coaster, thrill-seeker father who escaped Nazi Germany. It’s one family’s story of making sense of tragedy, grief and everyday life.
General admission tickets are $26 (fees may apply). Student and teacher discounts are available by phone and in-person. Group rates are available. Tickets can be purchased at Manatee Performing Arts Center, 502 Third Avenue W, Bradenton. Box Office hours: 10 a.m.–5p.m., Tuesday–Friday and 10 a.m.–2 p.m., Saturday, by phone (941)748-5875 or online at www.ManateePerformingArtsCenter.com.
